Airport train Railink will start operating from Manggarai Station in South Jakarta on Oct. 5, an official has said. The station has been prepared as the central station for all train traffic. 

The Transportation Ministry's railways and traffic director, Danto Restiawan, said the entrance gate to the airport train was separate from the gate to commuter lines and intercity train.

"The entrance gate to the airport train is located on the west side of the main access on Jl. Saharjo I, next to the bridge heading toward Pasaraya Manggarai shopping mall," he said in a statement on Wednesday.

The airport train will be available on lines 9 and 10.

The airport train is scheduled to depart every 30 minutes starting from 5:10 a.m. until 9:40 p.m., while arrivals will start from 7:17 a.m. until 12:17 a.m. 

"Escalators and elevators are available in the station for people with disabilities and the elderly," Danto said.

The airport train operating from Manggarai Station will add the number of airport train stations already operating the service, namely BNI City Station, Duri Station and Batu Ceper Station.
